Ridiculous, pro-Tesla article from a pro-Tesla site. Too many buttons and knobs? Wow! Perhaps the salesman said...., poor acceleration... This is just a propaganda piece disguised as journalism. What surprises me is Insideevs passing this along on their website. I've found them to be pretty balanced and they wrote a good review of the I-Pace. It's stuff like this that hurts EV sales.

And you'll find Tesla owners have filed complaints with NHTSA for the single-point-of-failure touch screen. When that stops working (as it has for people while driving) they lose control of a lot of things. The best they can do is pull over, find a way to shut it off and hope a restart (reboot) gets it working again.

Having been in the technology business for many decades, I appreciate the value of having alternate controls.

If she was going to post this information the actual conversation should have been recorded.
I am not convinced that the whole truth is being told here.

Generating clicks, which generates revenue. I would put it at equal parts preconceived ideas, so hearing what she want hear; misunderstandings, hearing statements without seeking clarification; BS to support the other two.
The dealer may have said the IPace have the ability to use Tesla destination charges, or simply misspoke, not likely as she claims (I would have believed that in December, but not July).
There is zero chance she actually could notice an appreciable difference in the acceleration between the two cars, because there is no appreciable difference. Although a noisy, poor handling, rattle-trap does ‘feel’ like it is going faster than it is, maybe that’s why she thinks her 3 is quicker?
She states the $85k IPace is almost $100k. Using that math logic, her 3 costed almost the same as the IPace...
